Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Kenmore elite mod.110.27032600. Always get error code UL on the rinse cycle and never completes the spin.
It appears your load balance sensor has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My Kenmore elite washer would get the UL error on almost every load no matter the size. The machine sounded like it was self destructing. I replaced the suspension rods and that was the fix for me. It will still get a bonafide UL error but now it works like when it was new. In my case the suspension rod spring in the upper left position was rusted badly and had lost a lot of it's tension. If you have mechanical ability this is a 30 minute fix. This link is a YouTube video that shows how to replace the rods. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E0bzeMRGlI
